Students have long requested more formal opportunities to focus on both the analytics and the business of sports while at The Wharton School. We introduce students to the Industry through:

Supporting student-run sports business focused clubs at the MBA and undergraduate levels

Sponsoring sports-specific conferences, speakers, career panels, receptions and forums to raise exposure to leaders and key topics in the sports business industry

Facilitating recruiting efforts in this highly competitive industry by working hand-in-hand with career services, companies and alumni

Bringing in executives and high-level sports industry administrators either as guest lecturers or for stand-alone events
